If you are running 4.8 (or any earlier version) you will be automatically updated to 4.8 Update 1.

People wanting a full installer (to install from scratch or to do a full reinstall), a server download or a tools download can find them on the Tiberian Technologies website (www.tiberiantechnologies.org) in the downloads section. Appropriate source code for 4.8 Update 1 as well as the source files for the map fixes in 4.7 (which are the latest fixes we have) can also be found on the site.

People who need Dragonade will have to follow https://github.com/TheUnstoppable/Dragonade for updates.

Hello, WHY is your text so large? lol

Interim Apex does not need scripts updates and it should not be attempted to use the patch on that game, as doing so WILL break it. IA does not use the same version of the engine that is meant for stock Renegade and other mods, but rather has a slightly different version with some extra changes. This difference results in issues if you try to use the wrong version with the wrong game.

Hope this helps. Also please make a thread in the help forum in the future regarding any issues you have. This is the news section and we do not look for help requests here (I just happened to notice).
